One speech in particular comes to mind, when she mocked Dexter's quest for "answers to questions that nobody asked." For those who don't know, that was the episode when he went to her for spiritual guidance. In the climax he went berserk with emotion, rampaging through the lab until DeeDee slapped him out of it, saying he'd changed from a benign creator to a "mad destroyer" and confessing that she was wrong to try and change him. Before he could comfort her she ran off crying, leaving him to quietly begin repairs on his lab.
...Man, it's hard to concentrate with that green emoticon incessantly puking.
Anyway, contemplating her own mortality would definitely bring out her more subdued side, like it would for anyone. It's this change in personality that creeps Dexter out, like it would, subsequently, for anyone in the company of someone contemplating their mortality.
I say, Genndy'd be proud. That collage of classic cartoon moments is heartwrenching.
Dude, that was deep. DeeDee always had a well-spoken side to her. It just takes that certain something to make it come out.
